It seems like Amazon Echo increases its capabilities every week.
Late last month, the online retail company announced that Echo's Alexa is equipped with knowledge of movies and the Super Bowl, just in time for Sunday's big game. Earlier this week, it was also announced that customers could order Domino's directly from their Echo device, again just in time for Super Bowl Sunday.
On Thursday, Amazon kept the revelations coming, announcing that Spotify Premium subscribers in the United States can now listen to their music on the Echo. Adding to the convenience is they can order Alexa to play any playlist, artist or genre from Spotify's massive catalog all by voice command.
As part of the announcement, Amazon revealed that Echo will also support Spotify Connect, enabling users to transfer and control their listening from the app to Echo quite easily.
"We're extremely pleased that Spotify Premium subscribers can now listen to their favorite music on Amazon Echo," Ian Geller, Spotify's global head of hardware, said in Amazon's press release. "Creating innovative experiences is core to our mission. We know our users will love controlling music with their voice at home."
Added Toni Reid, the director of Amazon Alexa: "Now playing your favorite music from Spotify is as easy as asking Alexa. Music is one of the most popular features on Amazon Echo, and Spotify has been one of the most requested services, so we're excited to bring it to our customers today."
As much as it's shaping up to being an all-encompassing device, the Echo has certainly managed to carve out a stellar lane in music, touting the ability to play tunes from outlets such as Pandora, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Amazon Prime Music, of course, and now, Spotify, the most-popular music streaming service of them all.
